Let’s do handprinting again 🙂 Remember the Octopus we did?  Since we are in the mood for octopus, let’s make a handprint Octopus 🙂

Handprint Octopus

Paint four fingers and your palm. Stamp on a piece of paper. Paint again and stamp again so that your octopus has 8 tentacles.

Paint your fingertip white and stamp as the eyes.

Use a black marker to draw the eye balls and mouth and the octopus is done 🙂

Refer to the video we shared on how to cut letters from paper here and we’ll be making alphabet teaching aid again today.

Today’s lucky letter is O.

O is for Octopus

Cut an O out of a piece of paper.

Use that paper O as a guide to draw the outline on a piece of colored foam.

Cut eight tentacles for the octopus.

Use hole punch and punch some circle foams.

Paste the small circles onto the tentacles.

Glue the decorated tentacles onto the O and you are done 🙂
